Bringing Back the Real Christmas Tree – Right to Your Front Door
We’re going to make this holiday season a little easier for you by allowing you to buy one of our fresh real Christmas trees online.
For decades Christmas trees have been the center piece of the Christmas season. Nothing brings back old memories like the smell of a fresh REAL Christmas tree. Brown’s Tree Farm has been growing and selling REAL Christmas trees for decades. It has been our privilege to be able to provide our customers with what we believe is an integral part of their holiday season.
Over the years Christmas trees have changed quite a bit. Years ago there were only a few popular varieties to choose from and most of them were not what you would consider “customer friendly”. Now there are several varieties to choose from and several of them have very beneficial qualities. Two very popular varieties are the Fraser Fir and Balsam Fir.
Fraser firs are famous for their two tone needles. Each needle has a dark green top with a silver underside. With a stiff branch, soft needles, and pleasant aroma Fraser Firs are a treat to decorate. The best thing about Fraser Firs is that their needle retention is excellent. Many of our customers report leaving their Fraser Fir Christmas tree up for over two months.
Balsam firs have several desirable properties. They have a dark-green appearance, long-lasting needles, and attractive form. Balsam Firs are also the most fragrant.
Over the years REAL Christmas trees have done nothing but improve. Put simply, their softer, more fragrant, and they last longer. While REAL Christmas trees keep getting better, FAKE Christmas tree sales continue to grow. Approximately ten million FAKE Christmas trees were sold worldwide in 2003.
There are a few things that are often overlooked when people decide to buy a FAKE Christmas tree.
The first is OUR economy. Approximately 85% of FAKE Christmas trees in the United States are imported from China. Approximately 25-30 million REAL Christmas trees are sold each year in the United States. Almost all of these come from Christmas tree farms. These are Christmas tree farms that provide jobs in their area.
The second important thing to consider is our environment. While their growing REAL Christmas trees support life by absorbing carbon dioxide and other gases and emitting fresh oxygen. In fact, one acre of land produces the daily oxygen for eighteen people.
The third important thing to consider is safety. Most FAKE Christmas trees are made of metals and plastics. The plastic material can be a potential source of hazardous lead. In fact the potential for lead poisoning is great enough that FAKE Christmas trees made in China are required by law in some states to have a warning label.
Now that I’ve provided some detailed information about both FAKE and REAL Christmas trees lets get to what is probably one of the biggest reason so many people are now buying FAKE Christmas trees. I think we can some it all up in one word – “Simplicity”.
These days our lives are so hectic that we don’t always have time to find a local lot to buy a REAL Christmas tree. You may often find yourself driving all over town looking for a decent REAL Christmas tree. Then when you do find a decent retail lot you have to contend with the weather. It always seems to be raining or snowing whenever you schedule time to go Christmas tree shopping. Then when you do find that perfect Christmas tree you have to find a way to fit it in your car or truck.
I understand you are busy and I want to help make this holiday season a little easier for you. That’s why Brown’s Tree Farm has decided to take their already successful Christmas tree business to another level.
